English Paper Piecing by Juline
I can't really get into the hexie shape, so I went with these. 2" octagons and chrysanthemum petals, ordered from Paper Pieces. I'm almost out of templates, so I need to start sewing them together or make my own templates. Or both. My first real scrappy project.
Question: This is my first scrap quilt, and I'm unsure how to go about it. I've read that values count more than coordinating colors/prints, but how would I distribute light/dark values in a quilt of this design? Two of each in each flower? Or?
4/22/13 I need more templates, so I had to start stitching the pieces together. I'm doing my best to just mix the light/dark values, and I think I've decided to use just one fabric for the perimeter of the quilt. Now I just have to pick that fabric. I'm glad to finally have a hand project again, and I'm really enjoying the process.
Finally started stitching them together.
